My 3-year-old daughter, Maggie, loves Cookie Monster. On a recent trip to Sesame Place, she couldn't be bothered with the rides. Instead, we were on a hunt for Cookie Monster the entire trip. When I recently stumbled upon Cookie Monster's Challenge, a new iPad app, I knew I had to try it out with her.

The new app from PBS Kids and Sesame Street is recommended for children ages 3 to 5 and features brain-building games that encourage problem solving, memory, focus and more. You'll find 10 mini games with different challenges. Maggie's favorite was to help the monster get dressed. The challenge features nine levels. As kids beat each level, they can earn pieces of a giant (and pretty funny) cookie-making machine. Children can use the machine to decorate and deliver the cookies they've earned to their hungry friend Cookie Monster.

Cookie Monster's Challenge can be found in the App Store on iTunes for $2.99.
